CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK FOR THE INTERPRETATION OF FATIGUE DAMAGE MECHANISMS IN COMPOSITE MATERIALS. Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • This paper reviewed fatigue damage mechanisms in composite materials, giving an account of the historical developments. The present understanding has resulted from a large number of investigations, some of which have required developing new techniques and modifying earlier techniques for observing the complex damage process. The development of damage involves a sequence of mechanisms that may not be separable into distinct damage modes but rather into dominant damage modes.
